Treasure Hunting

When the Saturday Sun decides to take the weekend off, it can mean only one thing: It's time to go antique shopping!! Although I did not find what I was looking for, I found oodles of other treasures.

I have been eyeing these two tables for weeks and want to use them as nightstands, but I'm second guessing myself and can't seem to make up my damn mind! They definitely need some TLC. I must go one day and do some negotiating with the booth owner, which is not a task I look forward to at all.

I can't explain my obsession with enamel ware. It just is. I can't get enough enamel covered things, especially when they hold darling pieces of faux food.

I am always attracted to old, beautiful doors. This one is a real looker, but I don't know what in the world I would do with it.

Mmm.. Black iron bed. Dreamy. I love these beds and although it is so beautiful and I could love it exactly how it is, I fantasize about spray painting it green or mustard or bright red.

Hey girl! These little lovelies always catch my eye.

This would make the most handsome umbrella stand and goes perfectly with our entryway decor. I'll put in on the negotate list.

I thought this rocking chair was purdy as a picture. With a different fabric on the seat it would be darling.

What a fascinating specimen.

Mmmm... I love the smell of old books. Musky.

If I would have seen this crib six months ago, it would have been a game changer, though I doubt it meets current safety regulations..hmm..

I love these chairs- they're modern, but earthy.  I could picture them perfectly adjacent to that large tufted sofa I want from Restoration Hardware...

I thought this little fella was super sassy.  I like to imagine that he dresses up in old Barbie clothes and reorganizes the miniature furniture once the owner closes up shop every night.

I'd like to put one of these lovely ladies over my mantle just so all who enter know I don't take myself too serious, unfortunately, I'm the only member of the household to find that idea quirky and charming.  Hmph.

I wish these drafting stools weren't so uncomfy because they go perfectly with that rustic, industrial chic look that I so desperately desire.

I am lusting after this spice rack big time.

Over-priced scaffolding of sorts that inspires me.  Isn't treasure hunting fun?
